PROBLEMS.
1. A weight of 5 tons is to be raised from the hold of a ship by means of a rope which takes 3| turns around the drum of a steam windlass. If At = 0.25 what force must a man exert at the other end of the rope?
2. By pulling with a force of 200 pounds a man just, keeps from surging a rope, which takes 2.5 turns around a post. Find the tensile force* at the other end of the rope, ju = 0-2.
3. A weight W is suspended by a rope which makes 1J turns around a clamped pulley and goes to the hand of a workman. If ju 0.2, find the force the man has to apply in order (a) to support the weight, (b) to raise it.
4. Two men, each of whom can exert a pull of 1250 pounds, can support a weight by means of a rope which takes 2 turns around a post. •On the other hand, one of the men can support it alone if the rope makes 2.5 turns. Find the weight.
5. In order to prevent surging a sailor has to exert a force of 150 pounds at the end of a hawser, which is used to keep (he .stern of a boat .at rest while the bow is being turned by the engines. Find flu* pull •exerted by the boat upon the hawser under the following conditions;
